Transcript of a 21-hour interview completed under the auspices of the UCLA Oral History Program

The interview proceeds chronologically, beginning with Cousins' position with Current history and extends through his career at UCLA. Minimal attention is given to his career at the Saturday Review of Literature, since that aspect of his career has been dealt with extensively. The interview examines Cousins' activities in peace and anti-nuclear movements since the 1940s, his writing, his struggle with ankylosing spondylitis, and his subsequent interest in helping other patients with life-threatening illnesses to help themselves. The interview includes extensive discussion of the United World Federalists, the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy, Cousins' diplomatic work, and his friendship with important political leaders of the post-World War II world
